 Excellent grip in dry or semi-dry conditions, hooks up well enough on roots, and really won't let go (even when I wanted it too!) in the right conditions.
Is not a mud tyre, but that should be obvious. In the wet somerset clay it got clogged up very quickly, but would throw it off once you got up some speed or road a harder drier surface.

 Have been running these tires on my 3 last bikes and dont want to change haha, corners nice, handles clay and roots real good.
Never had a punture yet.
Compound could be a little harder wearing though, but all up a good solid tire.

 These came on my bike I can't wait to see if they are as good as people claim. If not I'll switch back to my Continental Diggas.

WTB Prowler MX 2.5-Team DH (MSRP $60) — The MX (Motocross) utilizes the same aggressive transitions and outside knobs as the Prowler XT, but features a shifted center tread. The MX is a highly predictable tire at speed, boasting deep-piercing lateral grip in loose conditions. The 2.5-inch version excels on treacherous descents and high-speed chutes while the MX 2.1-inch thrives on epic, day-long trail rides.
